Great info Broz, I have been following all of your posts on all the bergers, even the 230s. I don't want to hijack your thread but I have been wanting to ask you a question for a while now. I have a basic rem 700 300 win mag without a break. I have no problem with the recoil. I have been wanting to take it to Phoenix Custom Rifles
here in AZ and have them make it a custom. But I am tempted to turn it into a 300 RUM with a break. I want it for my only rifle and I want to hunt deer, elk, and maybe some bear here in AZ and if it happens to be long distance, I want it to be capable to reach out there. What's your thought of a 300 RUM shooting the 215s or 230s? I know it is more expensive to reload for and the barrel life may be less but the extra velocity should have more knockdown power and even more useful, help it buck the wind better. Or should I just stick with the 300 winmag? Thanks for your time.
